Several aspects of the De’Longhi All-in-One Coffee and Espresso Machine are designed to simplify things, making it an excellent choice for anyone looking to try the barista experience. This is immediately obvious from the split design of the machine. On one side is a cafe-style espresso portafilter and adjustable milk frother; on the other is a 10-cup glass carafe for drip coffee. It’s an intuitive setup that visually guides new users on their favorite coffee drink. Plus, espresso and drip coffee can even be prepared at the same time, so nothing slows down your morning routine. During our lab testing, the De’Longhi steamed the fastest, produced the best milk, and had the fastest recovery time between drinks. milk frother it is also clearly marked to alternate between a thicker, finer foam (for a latte) and a lighter, bulkier foam for a cappuccino. While the Espressione model produced an excellent espresso shot on its own, if you’re a cappuccino lover it’s the clear choice of the bunch. So did our taste testers gave
De’Longhi the highest rating in coffee taste? Three different testers called it the coffee they always looked forward to waking up to, although it didn’t brew the strongest espresso. We found this device to be fairly easy to clean, with minimal coffee grounds trapped in the crevices of the machine. When using the machine however water started leaking out the back (without warning) once the drip pan was full, so we had to be careful and clean it often.
